M a t e r i a l s t u d i e d. Foliage impression PA 1410.1.

D e s c r i p t i o n. An incomplete leaf, without a base, elongate, over 80 mm long, 40 mm wide, on margin minutely sparsely denticulate, venation camptosemicraspedodromous, secondaries at base at wider, high up under regular angles.

D i s c u s s i o n. The identification is not corroborated by epidermal structure typical for this fossil species which is often met found in the Oligocene floras of Central Europe ( Walther and Kvaček 2007). Similar foliage is known in the early Oligocene sites of Hungary and Slovenia accompanied by fruits of the Sloanea- type ( Kvaček et al. 2001).
